Liked: Staff & service, amenities
Great location in Canberra close to shops and dinning options. The property itself was good. There is not enough lifts, wouldnt want to stay if the hotel was at capacity as you would never get on. The main issue I had was with the carpark. They park your car offsite and pay ($27 a day). So I informed reception the night before we will need the car at 9am. Come next day I checkedout and went to the carpark and the car wasnt there. Told the attended where's my car. They said we running a bit behind will get it for you in 10mins. 30mins later the car arrived. We ended up being late for our next appointment.
